iosamabin laden is gone. he also said we'd end the war in iraq responsibly. we've done that. he has protected civilians in libya, and qaddafi is gone. i serve up at the united nations, and i see every day the difference in how countries around the world view the united states. they view us as a partner. they view us as somebody they want to work with. they view president obama as somebody they trust. our standing in the world is much stronger so it charge of weakness is really quite baseless. >> schieffer: do you think mitt romney spoke inappropriately when he criticized and issued a statement so early in this turmoil? >> bob, i think you know, in my role, i'm not going to jump into politics and make those judgments. that's for the american people to decide. >> schieffer: madam ambassador thank you for being with us. >> thank you very much. >> schieffer: and joining us now for his take on all this, the ranking republican on the senate armed services committee, john mccain. senator, you've got to help me out here. the president of libya says that this was something that had been in t

because of iraq and because of guantanamo. they hated us because of the torture -- he used the word and accuses his own country ever torturing. and he is now apologizing and promising to change course. we would no longer be tough. we would be loved. we would show compassion. and we would get out of iraq. he set a deadline for afghanistan. he doesn't support the green revolution in iran. he shows the ayatollahs tremendous respect. he essentially protects them when they are under attack. he gets nowhere on the iran nuclear issue. he is equivocal in the arab spring. he leads from behind in libya. the theory was if we go soft and we are very nice, if we -- if we say [speaking in arabic [enough times, it will be all right. he decided, the theory and therefore the practice is going to be, retreat and withdraw. remember the line he uses? the tide of war is receding. >> sean: exactly. >> that means the tide of american power is receding. and the reason that american interests, schools, embassies, businesses are aflame in the middle-east from tunis to south asia is because things don't happe
, then we go to iraq, saddam hussein, he was a good boy at one point. we have to learn to shoot straight when it comes to foreign policy. host: i have to get some other voices in here. bob? go ahead. caller: thank you for taking my call. i had a personal remembrances about 9/11. i woke up at 11:00. my mother, who had died of alzheimer's, said i needed to see this thing on television. i was speaking with a friend of mine over at the spartan route. i said -- you know, these guys are muslim fundamentalists and fanatics. they might have their real names on the manifest. go look at that. follow the money. they went back and confirmed what the fbi report said from earlier that year, which had been kind of pushed under. we got lucky in that times square bombing. we solved that one. thank god the bomb did not off. but you know, we have had 10,000 people die in that war. thank god we got osama bin laden and it was a police action. thank you so much. host: how should we mark the day? last night on facebook we ask all of you to comment on how america has changed in the 11 years. host: you can put y

, syria, pakistan, iraq -- i met him in person finally before he was going to pakistan. we spent half a day with him. everything that happened, everything composite to his description -- ryan finished in the last years of the bush administration, presided over a transition that was complex and difficult and retired with the highest title of career ambassador. he came back to texas and worked as the dean of a school. at that point, he was looking at a life that would be his own. fortunately, for the united states, the president called again. in very difficult moments, president obama asked him to come back to national service. being the patriot that he is, he did. he left the school and went back to afghanistan as america's ambassador in a moment when we were beginning yet another transition period this afternoon, we have been very blessed to have him come to carnegie to make this stop but his return from afghanistan. he will speak to us about what the transition in that country holds, what the prospects are at why afghanistan still matters to the united states. ladies and gentlemen, p
that's a large part of it. it's also the ending of the war in iraq, and in effect how the war in afghanistan is no longer front page news the way it should be and the way it was in the past. certainly the main reason why terrorism has receded as a priority is basically because of the success the administration had against al qaeda. we see a threat far different than on 9/11, it's aa far different and weaker threat. most americans while they deal with some of the annoyance of tsa and other security measures put in place since 9/11, i don't think they feel the press of the threat the way they did a number of years ago. >> roger, i imagine there's not one thing you can name, but obviously people wonder. it is the improvement that is we've seen with tsa, some of the other counterterrorism measures in place and even the viewpoint of the cia, the fbi and counterterrorism agencies now working together? i guess the core of my question is, can you say why we have been so fortunate, so blessed, whatever term you choose to describe it for the attack like on 9/11? >> tamron, it's all of t
in another war, the war in iraq. the human cost and the extraordinary heroism of this war, it surrounds us. it surrounds us in our cities and our towns. and we'll win this war because of the strength and courage of our own people. some of our friends and neighbors, they saw their last images in baghdad. some took their last steps outside of fallujah. some buttoned their uniform for the last time before they went out and saved their unit. men and women who used to take care of themselves, they now count on others to see them through the day. they need their mother to tie their shoe, their husband to brush their hair, their wife's arm to help them across the room. the stars and stripes wave for them. the word "hero" was made for them. they are the best and the bravest. and they will never be left behind. [cheers and applause] [chanting "u.s.a.!" ] you understand that. and they deserve a president who understands that on the most personal level what they've gone through, what they've given and what they've given up for their country. to us, the real test of patriotism is how we treat the men

this is just a false flag operation. bin laden is trying to take our eye off of the real threat, iraq. and so there are presidential daily briefs that are literally saying no, they're wrong. this isn't fake. it's real. >> when a lot of people hear this, aren't they going to say this is another example of where not just the bush administration, but our intelligence community dropped the ball, they failed to heed the warnings that went all the way up to the president of the united states? >> actually, the counterterrorist center of the cia did a spectacular job. and that's what really comes down. in the aftermath, the white house and others said well, they didn't tell us enough. no, they told them everything they needed to know to go on a full alert. and the white house didn't do it. >> senior correspondent john miller, former fbi director joins us now. what do you make of this? >> i think what kirk has stumbled into here is a bit of a well-worn path. we knew some of that. what he has added is the granularity of the actual memos and some of the actual words that were there in front of the white

. there is $848 billion infant yom war costs assuming that we continue iraq and afghanistan z since we've ended iraq war on george w. bush's schedule and afghanistan in 2014 he then counts those savings. this is $800 billion in interest payments and he call that's a spending cut. no account for $716 billion from medicare he's borrowing from medicare and has to repay. if you look at his budget what he's put there in black and white and ask congress to pass versus g.o.p. house budget president obama calls for a trillion dollars more in spending than is called for in-house republican budget and $300 billion more in taxes so this is increasing the deficit above what republicans have been suggesting we do. yet, tonight went out there and said i'm going to cut this $4 trillion wasn't believable. >> and that is one of the things last week in tampa is this theme if you didn't build it they've been slamming the president for that. tonight we didn't hear that but that was the theme is that everyone sort of worked together as a community and citizen. soy thought he was directly trying to respond to that w
